  • Our Waters: Joining Hands Across Borders – First Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwater

    Transboundary waters connect populations of different countries. They are a major source of income for millions of people and create hydrological, social and economic interdependencies. This is the first ever in-depth report produced on Transboundary Rivers, lakes and ground-waters in the UNECE region. It aims to inform, guide and stimulate ...

  • Groundwater Recharge from Run-off, Infiltration and Percolation

    Groundwater constitutes the most important reservoir of available clean water. Due to its overexploitation, some anthropogenic mismanagement on the surface and the overloading of the cleanup potential of subsurface, many of the groundwater systems used for water supply are in jeopardy. The problem is very severe in dry-lands, but also in urban, ...

    Fully updated and expanded into two volumes, the new edition of Groundwater Contamination explains in a comprehensive way the sources for groundwater contamination, the regulations governing it, and the technologies for abating it. Volume 1 covers all major contaminants and explains the hydrology and data used to determine the extent of pollution. ...

  • Remediation Hydraulics

    In situ treatments involving the arrangement of contact between prospective reactants in complex porous media require a refined understanding of solute migration. However, the tools and methods used to predict and control fluid movement in the subsurface need significant improvement. Practitioners and regulators must develop novel methods to ...

  • Hydropolitical Vulnerability & Resilience Along International Waters - ASIA

    There is an increasing annual demand for water drawn from Asia’s international rivers for domestic, agricultural, industrial, and environment purposes. As a result, nations sharing river systems, lakes and aquifers are vulnerable to tensions and conflicts, which in many are intensified by climate variation and climate change. Therefore ...

  • Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Sewer systems constitute a very significant heritage in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant ...

  • Environmental Science Deskbook (Environmental Law Series)

    Environmental language has become highly technical and specialized—like a foreign language that's difficult to master and interweave into legal discussions. The text solves this problem with plain-English explanations of scientific terms, acronyms, concepts, methods, and applications. It helps you identify which chemistry, physics, or ...

  • Groundwater

    This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various international experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. It comprehensively deals with the resource evaluation through remote sensing (RS) along with GIS, resistivity tomography for identification of ...
